Database File (.dbf)

DBF is a database file format used by the dBASE database management system. Introduced with dBASE II in 1983, it arranges multiple data records with Array-type fields. The DBF format may also be compatible with xBase and other DBMS software.

Over time, the DBF format has evolved to include many features and capabilities, with several additional file types added to support data storage and manipulation. Despite its age, the DBF format is still widely used and supported by a number of database products due to its simple structure and support for a variety of data types.
